300k is really our limit. hoping with the way the market is, it can get us in a decent house somewhere close to UW (where my wife will be going next year), or close enough where her commute isnt a killer

There is a lot of inventory in the Greenwood, Lake City, Maple Leaf (areas of Seattle) that you can pick up at a good price. My wife commutes from North Seattle to Tacoma every day and it takes her about 45 minutes each way. The reverse commute is actually pretty nice (especially since there are lots of ways around I-5 when there is traffic).

They key to getting a good deal on a house is your interest rate anyway. Lock in a good rate ASAP.
